Shakespeare or no, love lives forever in fair Verona

Set on the Adige River, Verona is best known as the setting of 3 of Shakespeare's plays, including the star-crossed romance of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare never set foot in the city, and he would surely regret missing the impressive art, the stunning architecture, the open-air cafes serving fresh food and regional wine, and the well-preserved ancient Roman amphitheater. Whether you're seeking a Verona vacation rental in time for the annual summer opera festival or just want a stay in an attractive city close to the shores of Lake Garda, the ghost of The Bard will be jealous.

Fictional history that's almost as good as the real thing

You don't need to choose between romance and Rome in Verona. Hire a local guide or just set off on your own walking tour to the House of Juliet, where the real-life Cappello family once lived. There's a quaint courtyard where you can snag a selfie underneath the balcony or next to a statue of the fictional Juliet. Then head down Corso Porta Borsari, the street that was likely the main road through town in Roman times. Now, remnants of Roman columns and medieval reliefs can be spotted between the display windows of contemporary, upscale shops.

Buildings as beautifully crafted as Romeo and Juliet

It seems like there's a fascinating example of excellent architecture around every corner in Verona. Perhaps the most impressive sight in the city is the Roman Arena, built of pink marble in the 1st century CE. Relatively unassuming from the outside, the inside is a gorgeous open-air showground with 50 levels of seating, most easily appreciated in summer, when the city's opera festival graces its stage. Another imposing attraction is the Castelvecchio, built in the 1350s and now a museum of statues, frescoes, paintings, and jewelry.

Mild shoulder seasons and hot, outdoor-opera summers

Verona is busiest in spring and summer, and the weather does its part by making visitors feel comfortable. The humid, subtropical climate makes spring feel mild. Days are warm and nights don't get too cold. Summers temps can soar to highs in the 80s, and the streets grow more crowded during the annual opera festival. If you'd like to book a Verona vacation rental at the last minute, or if you just like to walk quieter streets, fall and winter are cold but never freezing, with temps ranging from the 40s to the high 50s.

A pristine garden and the prettiest mountain range

Renaissance design skills are on display throughout Verona, and that's true even when it comes to vegetation. If your Verona vacation rental is on the north side of town, you'll be near Giardino Giusti, an expertly sculpted mix of manicured landscaping and natural growth, all shaded by majestic cypress trees. For a wilder landscape, head 15 miles northwest of the city center to Lake Garda and the Mount Baldo mountain range. It's covered in snow in winter and in orchids, edelweiss, and peonies in summer.
